The peasants may sell or exchange their surplus products after the tax has been paid. Private enterprises exist alongside of state enterprises. The workers in both state and private enterprises are paid wages in money and the medium of calculation and exchange is money. That is the Nep. The New Economic Policy was first introduced in the Spring of 1921; but it was not until 1922 that the effects of it began to be felt on a wide scale.

The result is a very friendly attitude toward the Soviet Government. 1922 marked the beginning of a general revival in trade industry.

The long civil war, the interventions and the blockade dealt still heavier blows to Russian industry and almost brought it to complete ruin. To try to do anything with it seemed a hopeless task. Agents of other governments, industrial experts, went to Russia, investigated her industries and reported that they couldn't be revived without assistance from the outside. It was reports of 8 —
